2005 Trespass Cabernet Franc

Tresspass Vineyard - St Helena, Napa Valley
Retail Price: $42.00

Notes from the Winemaker: This Franc shows elegance and balance not always associated with this somewhat difficult varietal.  All too often Cab Francs are dominated by green or under-ripe characteristics.  Trespass possesses a cleaner and riper version from its very shallow and gravely soils.  A terrior perfect for taming such a varietal to unleash its ripe, rice potential.

This wine should improve over the next two years and survive to 10 years or more.

For optimal tasting, open this bottle one hour before serving, or decant.
